    I agree with you, ivorytip. Half the fun is finding and exploring new territory. Spent six weekends this summer backpacking with the spouse in a unit that we didn't even draw for this year but we'll draw some day again in the unit. We found lots a neat nooks and crannies. Yeah, the game will move around but we know the terrain very well for the future.

    You should tell him you're not happy with him taking your spot, just because you helped him out before doesn't give him the right to take the place over.

    Sorry, but I guard this information like it was my secret money stash!!

    Reminds me of when I was commercial fishing. I did it part time as a way to pay for and write off a boat many years ago. No GPS then and when you found a spot that always had fish on it, you never told anyone. You watched and made sure no one was around when you fished it and guarded it's location and never talked about it. I had several spots for deep water rock fish that would produce at least $500 bucks worth of fish every time it hit it. Needless to say I kept it to myself.

    I just reread the OP and this may be a little different than what we have been talking about. Last year it sounds like the guy was already hunting the area the OP was in when he stopped by camp and asked for help, which was given. This year he stopped by to tell the OP he had already set up camp where the OP was last year. Maybe he was just trying to be nice and let the OP know that so there was time for him to decide whether to go to another spot or maybe even ask if he wanted to hunt together. That's the whole problem with hunting public land since it's sort of a first come first served deal, even though we all hope everyone is ethical and uses a little common sense about it's use. There are plenty of people out there that have no idea how to coexist with others. In this instance I may have at least told the guy that I was planning on that area and to expect to see my camp set up pretty close to his. The only other way would have been a confrontation asking him why he did that and maybe offer some free advice on how to work with others when this kind of stuff comes up. Heck, maybe in his way that's what he was trying to do and it just didn't come out right.

    It is very possible the new hunter does not know he did anything wrong. I would take the time to explain it to him. If he's a good honest hunter, he won't do it again.

    ^^^^ yes.

    Always be up front about stuff like this . When you take someone be clear that you don't want them coming back with other people to hunt this area. If you are clear about this I think you will have less issues moving forward. When you are not clear about your expectations and the other person' doesn't' exactly understand how it works a misunderstanding is likely to occur and feelings hurt.

    The day I went out hunting with him was the first and last day. Found out quickly he was one of "those" types of hunters. Said he had permission to hunt of private land. He did for a wolf that was there but not for elk. I knew this information before I went up hunting. Didn't know he was hunting elk on the piece of private land. I stayed on FS land and he couldn't believe I wouldn't go onto private when he said he had permission. I gave him a suggestion to change pitch a couple times during his bugling. He would start off low and not change it, kinda sounded like a wolf. The elk just ran the other way. He got mad and told me I was doing it wrong. I just went with that instead of making him upset. He drew a bull tag this year and I drew 2 cow tags. He figured he had the bull tags so he got preference of camping spot over me. I already found a new camping spot, a little closer to a ridge of elk he doesn't know about.

    Well why didn't you just say the guy was a jackass, LOL! I'd be polite and not get into a big tussle if you run into him again, but I'd let him know he's not too ethical. Not that it will matter to him though if he has his head up his butt as far as it sounds like he does!
